Group F: How Belgium’s key balanced teams came in – 01/04/2022

Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku. A generation of Belgian stars is preparing for another World Cup, with this illusion about to be restored with the promise of perhaps unprecedented conquest.

With an update in sight, coach Roberto Martinez is already looking into options for his future star fall with Tielemans, De Ketelaere, Jeremy Doku, pillars for “the Belgian generation 2.0”, but none of these mentioned are stars like Eden Hazard and Kevin de Bruyne, at least for now.

Currently, Belgium is ranked second for the FIFA national team, and is the seed for the Qatar Cup. Even with all of this, it still doesn’t emerge among the top 3 favourites, mainly due to a lack of decisive players, something that has also affected the other team, England a lot.

In this way, the year 2022 will be an ultimatum, the last trophy from the top of its main players, and like it or not, the mix of the greatest Belgian generation with future stars, Roberto Martinez and his 3-4-3 will be able to go all the way from the semi, final, to the possibility of an unpublished title. However, it is enough at the moment of decision making players like De Bruyne, Lukaku and Hazard don’t disappear and instead, play the football they have always shown throughout their careers.

Shortly after the World Cup final, Croatia arrived as a surprise

After becoming the sensation of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Croatia promises a tough match for the big teams. The team led by Zlatko Dálic are confident after European qualification and are unbeaten since their Eurocup exit.

In a very solid 4-3-3, with very skilled midfielders, most notably Last Cup’s best player, Luka Modric. In attack, he also has experienced winger Ivan Perisic, who, along with Rebic and Kramaric, form a highly mobile trio, which at the last European Cup almost disqualified the strong Spanish side.

With this, in the possible classification for the round of 16, Croatia can put pressure on the bigger team. The generation remaining from the last World Cup already knows how to reach the top level of this competition.

There is life for Morocco in Group F

Since 1994 and 1998, Morocco has not managed to qualify for two consecutive World Cups. Commanded by the captain, Romain Saïss, the selection was characterized by a skilled and very fast team, where the mainstay was PSG right-back, Achraf Hakimi.

Unbeaten in the Cup Qualifiers, the team is confident of passing the stage for the second time in all participation in the tournament. The only classification for the second stage was only in 1986.

Halilhodzic, the coach of the national team, has a good set up with players from big clubs in Europe, such as the trio of Sevilla, goalkeeper Bono, En-Nesyri and Munir. I can also count on Hakim Ziyech if he doesn’t clash with Chelsea players, and doesn’t call him up for the Africa Cup of Nations.

After 36 years, Canada returns to the World Cup.

Participation in the World Cup in Qatar will be the second in the history of Canada, playing only in the 1986 edition, held in Mexico, when they faced Hungary, Soviet Union and France in Group C. Canada lost all their matches in the group stage and entered last.

However, the selection came with a team with interesting pieces, such as left-back Alphonso Davies, from Bayern Munich, and forward Jonathan David, from Lille, giving the country fans confidence and confidence. Davies missed the World Cup Qualifying finals due to myocarditis.

In the Concacaf qualifiers, Canada qualified with an impressive first place, displacing Mexico and the United States. So he became confident of overcoming his opponents and thus achieved a classification that to many might be surprising, but to those who followed the team closely, it was simply a consequence.
